Are you ready?
Ok so this weekend was my "French General" weekend:)
My first class was Friday night and it was taught by Shea and Debbie of The Gilded Life.
Check out their blog it is gorgeous!! They have events in Dallas that I hear are just amazing and they have started something new called The Gilded Girls Stash Society where they send out monthly boxes full of beauty:) I have yet to partake in either but seriously thinking about it!! Also they are featured in the NEW Where Women Create and their creative space is just to die for:)
I got to French General just a little early and spent just a little to much money;)
How could I not!!!
Look at all this!!!
Then there was our workspace and all the supplies.......
So after a little bit of a late start we all got to work:)
Cynthia (and I would link you to her blog but she says she hasn't posted in like a year;)
Terry working hard:)
And a new friend, Danette..........
Really nice ladies to sit for a couple of hours with:)
This was a little bit on the hard side. I am not big on Exacto knives unless it's a straight line lol:) This was quite a bit of detail work. The fabric was especially difficult to work with but in the end it turned out so cute!!
Some of the little details:)
I really love the way it turned out and you can't see it but it does have beaded chain attached to the embellished pins for hanging.
Well I better get goin' Lindsay needs her jeans sewn (why she asked me I have no idea;) and since it's her birthday tomorrow I said FINE!!! She will be 17! Which seems so unreal to me:)
But the good news is.........
I don't have to cook tonight! I bought tamales from the tamale lady at work and all I have to do is warm them up. JOY!!
Oh and the winner for my little soldered charm........
As you may or may not know I number comments 1 thru whatever, this time being 6 and ask a kid to pick a number.
This time Tyler picked........
Lucky number 3!!
Which is Shawn Street!
Email me your address and I will get it out pronto:)
Thanks everyone for your comments I really appreciate them!
I'll be back with more soon! I promise not to let a week pass:) Geez where does the time go!!??
